This dish (from Mamushka) is the ultimate, ultimate comfort food. I didn’t have pork ribs, so I used on-the-bone thick-cut porkchops instead. The pork is cooked with onion, potatoes, apple juice, and bay until it’s falling apart. Then, the stew is topped with kefir dumplings (rolled and cut into swirls), and cooked until the dumplings are pillowy and tender. We served it with more pickled Korean carrots (also from Mamushka). It’s savory, home-style Eastern European food at its best.
